The Overwatch Winter Wonderland Christmas update is now live, and with it come over 100 new cosmetic items such as icons, sprays, victory poses and best of all – new skins! You can see all 12 below.
In addition to the new festive skins, Overwatch players will also gain access to a brand new winter mode called Mei’s Snowball Offensive, a 6-on-6 single-elimination snowball fight.
“Mei’s Endothermic Blaster no longer unleashes a stream of frost or shoots icicles. Instead, it’s been modified to fire a single, super-powered snowball,” Blizzard explained in the Winter Wonderland announcement. “Taking down an enemy only takes one hit, but a miss can be costly. Once your weapon is empty, your enemies will have the advantage as you search for the nearest snow pile to reload, so don’t forget to cover your retreat with ice walls and cryo-freeze to block their attacks—and when the battle starts to heat up, you can activate Mei’s Ultimate, which turns her blaster into a semi-automatic snowball launcher, allowing you to fire continuously as your enemies scatter.”
The Winter Wonderland event is live right now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and will go until January 2. What do you think of the heroes’ new look? I especially love Roadhog’s glowing Rudolf tattoo and Zenyatta’s nutcracker costume.
